Abstract

The repeated silica gel colum chromatographies of n-BuOH fraction obtained from MeOH extracts of Eucommia ulmoides leaves led to isolation of a flavonoid-glycoside inhibiting monoamine oxidase B activity. Its chemical structure was determined to be $3-O-[{\beta}-D-glucopyranosyl\;(1{\rightarrow}2)\;{\beta}-D-xylopyranosyl]$ quercetin through interpretation of spectral data and adaptation of acid hydrolysis. The $IC_{50}$ value of this compound in rat brain mitochondrial MAO-B inhibitory activity was evaluated to be $8.05\;{\mu}mol/l$.
